Southampton Container Terminals (SCT) has continued to expand by taking on a further 10.5 acres of leased land from Associated British Ports (ABP). The new land, which is currently being used for ro-ro operations, will be handed over in early September, more than a year earlier than previously anticipated.

SCT pushes the boundaries

Campbell Mason, managing director of SCT, said: “The new land, which is in addition to the 13 acres taken on at the start of the year, will take the terminal footprint to over 213 acres. We are delighted that ABP has been able to accelerate the availability of this additional land, as it will provide us with further capacity to handle the continued high volume of boxes moving through the terminal.”

Approximately three of the 10.5 acres will require some repaving works as well as the removal of existing structures. Allowing for these works, the land will be phased into terminal operations as soon as practicable after the handover, according to SCT.
